5 Person Team Rules for 4 Men and 1 Woman
By implementing this rule, the IVL is hoping to avoid
teams having to play against 4 person teams, since no one
really enjoys doing that. And, this will encourage all the male
players to show up, even if one of the female players isn't
available or is arriving late.
In any IVL league, you can
play with 1 member of the opposite sex and have a total
of 5 players on the court (namely, 4 men, 1 woman).
The female player stays at right front the entire game
(she still serves when it's her turn)
and the other 4 players rotate past her.
When it's the female player's turn to serve:
She'll serve the ball and run up to play right front.
The male player before and the male player after the female
player in the serving rotation need to help keep the serving
rotation in the correct order.
The female player stays at right front the entire game to
prevent three male players from being in the front row at any time. (Note:
The female player starts each serve and serve
receive at right front. After the serve, she can switch
to another position.)
There are no "invisible" players. 2 male players in the front
row, along with the female player, and the other two male
players are in the backrow.
Note: You cannot use the new libero rule if your team is
short-handed. You'll need at least 7 players there to use the
libero. When using the libero, the coed rule (at least two
members of the opposite sex on the floor) is in force at all times.
